It's amazing what a little bit of confidence can do for yo. His win at Worlds proved to himself that he did have the ability to win.
- Zipp rims will break if you look at them too hard
- R-Sys wheels will spontaneously explode
- The ZG crankset will never, ever exist
- Everyone needs Lightweights, even if they're fat and old
- Parts actually made of metal are SO 10 years ago

True, but he still does not know how to celebrate a win. Cmon is it really so hard to put hands in the air :mrgreen:

A media darling and showman he is not.

I don't mind it for a change. Just a quiet satisfaction of a job extremely well done. Anything but that fricking pistiol which is just tragic IMO, even for a rider of that calibre who should be able to do what he wants. Again, my bias against Contraband is probably shining through...

Any votes for breakout riders so far this year or people who have put in strong performances, but haven't in the past?

He's not on dope so he's dying and can barely breath at the finish.

Ride the latest issue of the Australian Ride he was asked the same about worlds and his said he has lost too may race to take and chances rides until he is over the finish line. I personally like his understated style.

Realistically it's his best change of a GT.

At least for this year I'd think (as can't see him also doing the Vuelta...?)
